I'm a runner--I really am!!
Sunday, June 07, 2015
I freely and fully admit that the thought of running outside terrified me. I thought it meant going at a 7-10 mph pace the whole time, and I knew I could never do that. Walking-sure I could do that! Walking for miles was just fine with me and I loved to do it- but running outside was just out of the question. Couldn't do it wouldn't do it.
Over time I noticed people 'running' at a pace I could probably do. I decided to give it a try on my lunch break at work because I knew it would be a short time and if I got tired I could walk back. So I did....and absolutely loved it. I finally understood why people loved to run--they did it at their own pace. Not a race. Just to be able to do it. And I was becoming a runner--a slow runner but running MY way. I'm doing this!!!
